Go Industries, Inc. was founded in 1978 by Mr. R. Orth. Mr. Orth saw the need for workmen to protect the tailgates of their pickup trucks. Go Industries went to market with their first product, an 11 gauge steel tailgate protector. Go Industries soon expanded the product line to include other functional accessories including Grille Guards, Bed Rails and Headache Racks.
In the mid-1980's, Go Industries moved to its current location. Several expansions later, Go now has two manufacturing facilities and one distribution center. One manufacturing facility and the distribution center and offices are located in Richardson, Texas and the other manufacturing facility is located in Clifton, Texas.
Products today are manufactured in state of the art facilities utilizing computer controlled manufacturing equipment and robotic welding machines. All products are backed by a Go Industries warranty.
Today, Go Industries' manufactures a wide range of products for pickup trucks including:
